Climate Change 2014, a report issued by an Intergovernmental panel says bio energy is playing a critical role for mitigating climate change. The study also shows carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel combustion and industrial processes contributed nearly 78 percent of total greenhouse gas emissions from 1970 to 2010.  25 by 25 alliance project coordinator Ernie (shay) Shea says renewable fuels are having a significantly positive environmental impact and this report shows it.

Shea says that report also shows the importance of having a robust Renewable Fuel Standard and something EPA needs to keep in mind as they evaluate volume requirements under the standard.

Shea says in the future producing even more biofuels will continue to improve the environmental footprint.

The 25 by 25 Alliance’s goal is to have 25 percent of the nation’s fuel come from renewables by the year 2025.
